We are a new high-quality, affordable, counselling and psychotherapy service available for people across Dundee and surrounding areas, working with adults, young people, children, and couples, which opened in November 2019.
We believe we can help people find hope in even the most difficult circumstances.
We believe it is OK to not be OK.
We understand life is often messy!
The service is available to people of any faith or none and we offer the opportunity to explore issues from a Christian perspective for those who request it. Our counsellors create a safe space for people to bring the complex messy reality of who they are, body soul and spirit, to be understood, helped and supported on the journey towards well-being.
Our team have experience in a wide variety of settings, including community, health service, education, and Christian churches. We are passionate about making good counselling and psychotherapy available to people because we know that by providing skilled help, we can see people manage the issues in their lives better, make changes, and move towards recovery and transformation.
It's about helping you feel better and function better. You come as you are with doubts, questions and fears, and your counsellor will make you feel comfortable then help you to identify what you hope to gain from counselling. Gently, at your own pace your counsellor will help you move towards your goals, supporting you as you face the pain and difficulties in your life. Because everyone is unique your sessions will be tailored to what you need using a variety of approaches. There will be some tears and some laughter along the way but you will be glad you made the journey. There is hope for you!
Counselling or Psychotherapy?
In Scotland today counselling is the term generally used to describe an activity where a client is able to talk to someone in a confidential safe space with the aim of feeling better and managing things better, sometimes it includes seeking advice and other sources of help. Psychotherapy is used to mean a type of therapy which deals with the mind, the psyche. The terms can be used interchangeably. We choose to use them together to give a sense of the breadth of what we offer, from simple non-judgemental confidential listening to creative and well researched techniques, all aimed at helping you feel and function better.
If you have a Christian faith, it is helpful to find a counsellor who can help you explore your all your life's issues including your beliefs, doubts and experiences.
All our counsellors are Christians and offer the service to hurting people of all faiths and none, as their way of living, giving out love and care.
